Scientology, in forced-abortion case: We treat people no worse than the Catholic Church does - 2016-01-28
(Seagoing monks, apparently)
Yet again, Scientology is defending itself in court by claiming that it treats people no worse than the Roman Catholic Church does. We wonder when, if ever, the Catholic Church is going to take notice of this.
Sure, the Catholic Church has deservedly been pilloried in the press and the courts for its horrendous sexual scandals. But that's not the point here. In this case, Scientology is arguing that it can treat children essentially as slaves in its "Sea Organization" because it's just like the way the Catholic Church treats its nuns and monks and priests.
